Sunday, March 13, 2022

GRAMBLING — Grambling State University has lifted the protective mask requirement that has been in effect since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020. Face masks and coverings may be worn on campus but are not required, effective immediately.

GSU gradually resumed on-campus work for team members beginning in June 2020 with a mask mandate that remained in place since that time.

After months of virtual and hybrid learning due to the COVID pandemic, GSU returned to in-person learning for the fall 2021 semester with the mask requirement remaining in place until now.

The campus will continue to adhere to University of Louisiana System guidelines and follow the recommendations of state and local health officials as much as reasonably possible to continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

COVID-19 rates will be monitored, and GSU may, when necessary, reinstate the mask requirement on campus.

Pfizer, Moderna, or the single dose of Johnson and Johnson vaccinations and boosters are still being administered by the Louisiana National Guard. The free service is available for students, employees, and the community in Grambling Hall Auditorium on the GSU campus from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays (excluding holidays).

The Louisiana National Guard provides free COVID-19 testing for students, employees, and the community in Grambling Hall from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays and from 8-11 a.m. on Fridays.

Free COVID-19 testing for students is available at the Foster Johnson Health Center (temporarily located at the GSU Laboratory High School on the GSU campus).

Free Rapid Testing for students is available at the Health Center and is temporarily located at 407 Central Ave. Hours of operation are from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8-11 a.m. on Fridays.
